Hello Bloggers, thanks for coming by for a visit. I was at the dollar store the other day and came across these thingies:
I remember my mother used to use them in the kitchen to clean her pots and pans but I was looking at them through my crafty eyes...~~~...~~~...
This is what you'll need: Plastic, glass or tin bottles/cans, ribbon, and those thingies.
Peel off all labels, I used Goo Gone:
The copper larger thingies can be turned inside out and rolled out....that's it! stretch it over the can/glass and you are done. Add a little ribbon with glue to the rim. The smaller thingies can be pulled from the center out like rubber bands and pulled over your can/glass. Here's the final look:
Hope you liked this easy inexpensive little project. I'm off to think of more ways to use these incredible little thingies.
